Fremont Pope, a former penniless hobo, will do almost anything for his wife, and the best way to support her and their children, is to find a job outside Oklahoma, remove Sibyl from the family stress, and offer a place where she can freely share her beliefs. But fate is not in his favor.
When a job opportunity becomes available, will they move from Shawnee? Sibyl is pregnant with another baby and her mother insists a disaster will occur if they leave. Does God want them to stay near family? Or is hope leading them toward their dreams?

Inspirational historical fiction based on the true story of the Pope family during the 1930s.
I could almost feel the grit in my teeth as I read about the dust bowl and the incredible drought. It must have been very difficult to believe that God had everything in control and had not abandoned them. (A Promise to Break)
